    that has nothing to do with what i said but ok..

    a carb motor will be cheapest normally.
    tbi will be more.
    and typcialy a fuel injection set up will cost even more.

    carb- few vac lines to hook up. carb set up.
    tbi more vac lines and some wiring.
    fuel injection- vac lines and lots of wiring.

    so thats gonna be a deciding factor.
    some shops will give you a break if you buy the motor thru them. cause you will pay a few extra dollars for the motor then.

    That could be just a head gasket.
